    All other things you can do with the web interface can be entered in the same fashion.

    Hi,
    the Alexa-plugin with the included HA-Bridge will never get a translation. I asked and he is not interested. The HA-Bridge alone also runs for instance on RaspBerry or different NAS and there you have english instructions:-)

    I running my on synology nas works fine for my lights. But changing channels not working properly it takes 10 times for alexa to understand . Found solution, harmony hub plus ifttt and changing channels with alexa echo working perfectly.

    Hi deividuska,
    the recognition is sometimes a problem. I use "Alexa schalte Das Erste an" (Alexa switch on Das Erste????) to switch channel. On the Alexa-webside or in the App you can see what Alexa unterstood and then change the name of the action accordingly.

    I cannot check as I am in China at the moment.

    ciao

    Ive taken a different approach and it works OK.
    Ive got a Broalink RM Pro and using the RM Plugin (IR commands) I can control my DUO 2.
    I say BBC1 and the RM Pro types the codes as per remote control (channel 12 so presses 1 + 2 and OK)
    There are a few downsides.
    1 - Each command (power, mute etc) is a new device in alexa so there will be 100s if you want to add in channels.
    2 - Sometimes all commands with more than 1 button press dont work properly (for bbc 1 above I can sometimes get channel 1 or channel 2 or channel 12.)
    3 - Each command has to setup manually in RM plugin.

    I looked at maybe using HTTP commands in OpenHAB or Home Assistant but this would take ages to setup and also mean that there would be 100s of new devices (Hue Light) in alexa.

    Whats needed is an Enigma2 skill for Alexa that knows the commands from the box and the channel names.
    Not sure if thats easily done though.
